What our students say

vickybooth"My experience of completing my PhD with the School of Medicine and the Division of Rehabilitation and Ageing has been extraordinary. The division has some of the most inspiring, talented and knowledgeable researchers in the world, all of whom value the contribution of you as a PhD student, make you feel welcome in their world, and support you to be the best researcher you can be. My supervisors have been incredible, supporting me when needed and allowing me to grow and develop my skills through experience and opportunities. I could not have done my PhD in a better place and have, and will continue, to promote the School of Medicine and Division of Rehabilitation and Ageing as an exemplary environment to conduct your research and gain your qualifications.  The Centre for Doctoral Training in Rehabilitation and Healthcare Research has developed in my time within the division, and I feel strongly that the opportunity to study and work alongside other clinicians and clinical-academics has been a cornerstone of my success."

I chose Nottingham as the CDT has a vibrant community of clinical academics from a range of disciplines which provides a great peer support network. It also has international leaders in therapy research who have been invaluable in providing advice and support to develop my career."
